Re: deposit when ordering?

Up in Canada, dealers are nutty. One dealer asked me for a $7000 deposit (!!) on a 14 SRT - that was enough to make me walk away.

The dealer I ended up purchasing from asked me what I wanted to put down, to which I responded, nothing. They said they needed $2500 to know I was "serious". They gave me a great deal (around $2K off MSRP, while others in Canada were charging $10K OVER MSRP!) so I put it on my credit card.

I remember when I bought my 2011 CTS-V, they asked for $1000. So I think $1K sounds about right.

Re: deposit when ordering?

My dealer asked for $500 for each of the two 2014 GC Overlands that we ordered.

Re: deposit when ordering?

My dealer didn't ask for any deposit when I ordered my 2014 Summit back in January.

AMEX used to offer full car purchase on their cards.
Since I don't travel enough, dumped the platinum as its too darned expensive unless you literally travel the globe.

However, if I recall, the use of a credit card for a vehicle purchase does not offer the same type of purchase protection you get for any other credit card purchase.

Heck, my dealer offered to take cash and fill out the IRS paperwork for me.
They offered a no deposit order, but pretty much everyone in the building knows me on a first name basis....

It depends on the dealer. Some will insist on a deposit, and some will insist on a non-refundable deposit.

I would tend to insist on a different dealer on a vehicle that tends to stay sold out so reliably unless you were to order some bizarre combination that no one else in their right mind would buy [which capability seems severely restricted]

Build up the car you want, then ask the sales folks to see if there are similar ones in stock at reasonably local dealers, particularly if the one in stock has a bit more options... then offer to buy if they'll cut a small deal on those options. You might get a vehicle within 24 hours of the order--I did, but I live in Jeep Heaven area and there are lots of dealers plus a depot.

Re: deposit when ordering?

Just ordered at 2014 SRT in Canada. Dealer asked for a $500 deposit.

Granted we have bought two Overlands and now an SRT.

Re: deposit when ordering?

I actually called Chrysler to complain about the dealer in Canada who asked me for a 7000 deposit. They evaded responding to my complaint, saying that dealers can ask for a deposit. Sure they can, but 7000?? And you can bet they wouldn't have paid me interest on that amount when I got it back.

There needs to be a standardized policy on this issue. Dealers shouldn't have free rein over deposits. That's not fair for consumers.
